Mary and the Church (by Brother John Samaha, S.M.)
Below is an interesting observation by Pope Benedict XVI when he was known as Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger.
Only in Being Marian Do We Become the Church
The Marian comprehension of the Church most decisively counters a merely bureaucratic concept of the Church. We cannot make the Church,
we must be her. And only to the extent that faith, by our doings, molds our being, are we Church, and is the Church living within us.
Only in being Marian do we become Church. Even in the beginning, the Church was not made, but begotten. She was begotten when in the
soul of Mary there awakened the fiat. This is the most profound desire of the Council: that the Church awaken within our souls.
Mary shows us the way.
Excerpt from Ecclesiology: "Called to Communion: Understanding the Church Today" by Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, p. 10.

Doctor Says Many Are Cured in Lourdes
Invites Physicians to Attend Conference for Their Own Healing
Source: Zenit (Lourdes, France), February 8, 2010
The former head of the Lourdes Medical Bureau is affirming that all people can receive a cure at Our Lady's shrine if they pray and
hope for it with perseverance. Doctor Patrick Theillier, who retired from leadership of the bureau last year, stated this in an
interview with France Catholique.
The cure, he explained, "might not be as spectacular as to be considered a miracle. However, the physician added, it can affect
"in a profound and lasting way the person who experiences it, in all his being, body, soul and spirit." Doctor Theillier affirmed that
"these cures are truly innumerable."
The bureau is a medical organization run by doctors that operates within the Sanctuary of Our Lady of Lourdes, which, among other
things, is responsible for the medical investigation of cures associated with the shrine. The doctor noted that there are, of course,
miraculous cures as well in Lourdes, and sixty-seven have been officially recognized as such....

Mary--Seat of Wisdom
Source: University of Dayton Magazine (Dayton, Ohio) Winter 2010
The University of Dayton's Marian Library has new leadership but remains the world's largest and most comprehensive repository of printed
material on Mary, with 75,000 books and up to 150,000 articles and pamphlets. Its art collection contains an estimated 3,600 Nativity
In January, Father Francois Rossier, S.M., was installed as executive director of The Marian Library/International Marian Research
Institute. At the same time, outgoing director, Father Johann G. Roten, S.M., was honored for leading the institute for two decades
that saw graduate students in theology come from around the world to study at the institute. Roten also shepherded it into the digital
age; witness The Mary Page at http://campus.udayton.edu/mary/.
Rossier, a native of Fribourg, Switzerland, who came to Dayton in 2003, is at home around the world. He speaks five languages and has
taught on every inhabited continent.
His teaching and research focus on the biblical texts that speak of Mary. He also examines how Mary is portrayed in popular culture and
Mary, "he says, "is the most-written-about woman in the entire human history, and she's an emblem of Catholic tradition and identity."
